Credits include principal roles on The Next Step (NBC Universal Kids/CBBC/ABC/Family Channel), Anne with an E (Netflix/CBC), and Feel The Beat (Netflix) along with several TV commercials and print ads. Emily was recently nominated for two Joey Awards - Best Performer in a Music Video (I’m a Mess/Bebe Rexha) and Best Performer in a TV Series. From a young age, Emily has had a strong passion for performing both live and on camera! She also just completed a mini-residency with Rudy Abreu’s Embodiment x RAdiance, her first full-length feature show, The Overthinker, which received rave reviews.
Dance has always been Emily’s first passion, something she holds close to her heart. Since a young age she has accumulated several top finishes including national champion titles at Showstopper, The One, and 2 x Top 10 and 1 Top 20 placement at The Dance Awards, along with several first place finishes at Jump, Nuvo, and Blake McGrath’s VIP Dance Event.

In her spare time, Emily hangs with friends, her sister Kate, and her golden retriever Oakley. She loves music, singing and playing guitar, fashion and food, and plays flag football at school. Travel is another favourite activity having spent more time across the US over the past few years; she is eager to discover more of the world on future adventures starting with a bit of Europe this summer. Emily is thrilled to be a part of this elite group of C5 Models and she looks forward to an amazing year celebrating successes with all of them!
